Wilmington Fire Department “In Memoriam” page has been updated! 1/14/2024

Check out the clock that was donated to the Department!

Charlie Harris was a Firefighter for over 50 years.
From Winchenden, Mass. In the 1950’s to his 35 years in Keene,NH. Starting in the 1980’s.
When Charlie passed, his wife Diane, wanted to donate some of his collectable items.
She reached out to former Wilmington firefighter, and Keene Fire Mutual Aid Deputy Chief of Tom Redin.
This wooden AHRENS Fire Apparatus clock was one item that Diane thought Tom should have. Not having the space to hang the clock, Tom approached us to see if we could hang it in the Day Room of our new station.
It is now proudly displayed on the wall of our Day room. Diane is extremely happy that it went to another fire Department. She says, “Especially one with a new station!”
Thank You very much Charlie, Diane, and Tom
